Beautiful hotel. Lovely room with a fantastic view. Decor is outstanding and nothing is tired looking. Excellent food, really good value and not overpriced. Lovely, friendly & welcoming staff, really helpful and nothing too much trouble. Really accommodating after a hard day's climb! Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed two nights recently at Westlakes. What a lovely and comfortable hotel this is. Just as fantastic was the restaurant, where we ate for our two nights. We even had a farewell pack given to us for our drive to York. Any couple would love to stay here for a few (or more) nights.

Had an enjoyable weekend away at this beautiful hotel. On arrival we were met by Diane, who throughout our stay, couldn't be any more helpful to us. We had with us, our 2 year old granddaughter who was welcomed as much as we were. The room we had was tastefully decorated, and very, very clean. There was nothing we could... More

As soon as we arrived we were totally relaxed and felt completely at home and welcome. The owner showed us to our room, couldn't wait to go to bed that night, as soon as you saw the bed you... More

Loved the stay in our top floor room with stunning view over the countryside. No lift, but not too much trouble to get to room. Very good room with high level of finishing. En-suite was lovely. Had a evening meal & breakfast, both of which complemented the quality of the hotel. Would easily stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Westlakes Hotel is a beautiful late Georgian Country House set in three acres of tranquil mature gardens, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We have a choice of ten en-suite bedrooms and each room is individually designed to give a comfortable space to work or relax in, with complimentary wireless internet connection. You can be sure of the warmest welcome and friendly service from Geoff and Debra, and our experienced friendly staff. Our 28 cover restaurant is open Monday to Thursday and Saturday from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Please book to avoid disappointment. Special Offers available - please call or follow us on Facebook for more information. To the east is the spectacular scenery of the Lake District, while to the west , the Cumbrian coast offers long, uncrowded beaches. Indeed the area offers the best of both worlds; it is attractive but remains unknown by the majority of the Lake District tourists. ... more   less
